PLAYBACK:stl has been big fans of the St. Louis-via-Cincinnati alt-rock band Leo for years now. In fact, we like to think that we discovered 'em before anyone else in the Gateway to the West. (So what if it's not true? Don't burst our bubble.) We first encountered Ian Eddy and Co. four years ago at Indianapolis' Midwest Music Summit where we promptly pledged our undying love and never looked back. When Eddy moved to St. Louis a year later—sans the rest of the band, but really: whose falsetto is it that elevates these songs far above the standard fare?—we were ecstatic to welcome him to his new home.

Eddy's (finally) got a solid lineup in place (he himself plays guitar and sings; backing him are Michael Roberts on guitar, Rek Mohr on bass, and Mark Grabowski on drums) and a brand new CD to show for it. We've been waiting years for a proper Leo release; the time has finally come. You bet we're going to be there; are you?
